Eleni Kamma

°1973, Athens (GR) - lives and works in Brussels (BE) and Maastricht (NL)

In her books, drawings, videos and installations, Eleni Kamma investigates gaps and contradictions within existing cultural narratives and structures through a broad range of media and the wealth and diversity of its references. Issues of memory, authenticity and identity are central in her artistic practice and they often take the form of real objects or stories that are constituted as stereotypes through omission of their actual history. By revisiting systems of classification and strategies of description and taxonomy, she examines the relation of the cliché, the banal and the stereotype, to the formation of history and the production of meaning.

Eleni Kamma has had numerous solo exhibitions, including shows at WIELS, Brussels; Macedonian Museum of Contemporary Art, Thessaloniki; and Villa Romana, Florence. Her work has also been shown in several group exhibitions at venues such as the National Museum of Contemporary Art, Athens and Bonnefanten Museum in Maastricht. She has also participated in the 1st International Moscow Young Biennial in Moscow in 2008; the 10th International Istanbul Biennial, Istanbul in 2007; and the 1st & 5th (curated by Katarina Gregos) Thessaloniki Contemporary Art Biennial.
